First time to this restaurant. Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent food. We’ll definitely be back.
We were having a wonderful time with friends at the Villa Rosa UNTIL a couple arrived with a VERY noisy baby. It was impossible to hear the conversation across our table for four and it changed the wonderful ambience that we were experiencing immediately. Not just for us but for every single person in the room. I understand this happens sometime but the screaming went on way too long and the restaurant manager did not seem to do anything about suggesting that maybe this type of restaurant was not suitable for a screaming baby at 8:30/9 pm. It was very unfortunate as we highly recommended Villa Rosa and our guests were not impressed and probably would not go back there if they were visiting Penticton in the future.
Villa Rosa is a consistently wonderful restaurant specializing in Italian cuisine. Our dinners were absolutely delicious and the service was terrific. Highly recommended!
Great food and great service.location is good easy to find.
Service was great but unfortunately the food was mediocre. Nothing special. We shared three different dishes and kept our hopes up with each new dish but will not be going back. It’s too bad because all the staff were very friendly and welcoming.
Great Food as always, lively atmosphere and excellent service as always from Danielle!
The food is delicious and the service attentive at a reasonable price point in a very convenient location.
Whenever I come to Penticton I like to bring my friends here in appreciation of their hospitality. They never disappoint whether it’s the main meal appetizers or desserts.
Too much garlic overpowered the food. They did not have 2 of our choices on the wine list and what they suggested was not good. The salad had no dressing to speak of and we had to ask for more.
We had a most enjoyable 40th anniversary celebration with our family. The food was excellent as was the service and ambience.
Thoroughly enjoyed the food and wine. The service was good as well.
A last minute stopover enroute back to Calgary. Got to see deer and admire a Lamborghini in the parking lot!
We would definitely recommend Villa Rosa for good Italian Cuisine and will be back again. As someone with celiac disease it is an absolute pleasure to have knowledgeable staff and so many gluten free options.
Enjoyed our meal with family from ontario
Service and ambience were very pleasant
Staff was very profesional
Our evening was lovely. My sisters (2 of them) were visiting my husband and I. We decided to go out for dinner to celebrate this very special occasion. We were more than pleased with our service and the food...everything was perfect. The only complaint would be the noise. The restaurant was full and all the customers chatting happily...so it became quite loud. Happy customers are a good thing...not sure what the restaurant can do about the noise level...perhaps we should have gone on a week night (rather than a Saturday) and hoped for a less busy evening.
It was very good food but too loud and too many flies. The dish I ordered was linguini with crab and shrimp and although crab meat was already mixed in with the pasta there were 2 small pieces of crab leg that I had to break open myself to get to the meat, pretty messy and if I was there on a date I wouldn’t have done it
Ambience and food were both very good. As a celiac person, I greatly enjoyed the jambalaya over gluten-free noodles. My husband enjoyed his meal, and the wine selection was great. Would definitely recommend.
Had a great time at Villa Rosa. Every time we are up inPenticton, this is one of our must go to’s. Great food, great value and great service.
We read some critical reviews but decided to try it regardless. My wife and I were staying in Naramata celebrating our 25th anniversary and were looking for a low key but nice place to celebrate. We sat on the patio and though it was very busy, we could still have a normal conversation without raising our voices. We found the food to be very good but the star of the evening was the amazing service. Cailan was outstanding and made our evening very special. Thank you so much for that Cailan and Villa Rosa! I highly recommend this restaurant for good food and great value!
Always wonderful to eat at Villa Rosa. Not super fancy, you can wear your every day clothes, but the ambience is romantic and lighting is low, romantic and food is excellent.
Always good food and excellent staff. Well worth a visit
Always a good choice. I've eaten here a dozen times ( or more ) and have enjoyed it every time. They do what they do very well. Servers and kitchen know what they are doing and get it right. Good wine list, cocktails and beer selection.
Great service, awesome food, good portions, relatively fast service, overall great experience.
We met friends from out of town, Penticton was the half way point. The service here is always wonderful-friendly efficient and attentive without being intrusive. The food was good, gnocchi appetizer was delicious. My pasta dish was cooked perfectly, there was too much sauce for me but the flavour was very good. Our friends enjoyed their chicken dish and the fettuccine. There is a good wines list which makes it easy for all to find something that will appeal to them. A nice meal in a nice restaurant. Perfect way to spend time with friends.
Service was great. Really chill. All the courses were spot on. Would recommend the gnocchi. Thanks Villa Rosa!
There was a large party next to our table so was hardly an intimate experience. The main disappointment was food. It was rather average, nothing to write home about. Certainly not worth the money.
Wonderful food, great service but very, very noisy.
Great hospitality, service and flavours in the Italian repertoire. Well done
The food was good (not great) and poor service. Others seated after us received their food before we did. We had to ask for bread many times while waiting for our food. Outdoor covered patio area could use ceiling fans for better ventilation. We asked to be moved inside because of the heat and the waitress never came back to update us on a table. We came from the states to celebrate an anniversary with friends and were miserable on the patio. Dinner, wine and tip, our bill was over $250 for four people. We were there over two hours and when we left, the restaurant was half full. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant because it's not a good value and poor service.
Always a delicious meal, service is always great, as is the atmosphere......our fave choice for a really nice dinner evening...
Came here last year and loved it - back again this year all the way from Calgary and once again did not disappoint. Think this is the best Italian I’ve had in Canada. Everything is fresh, cooked to perfection and service is 100% and on the ball. I’ll be back!
Great help in arranging a preferred table location
Pleasant property, however none of the 4 - 5 veal dishes were available gluten-free. There was an excessive number of staff galumping back and forth in their noisy, mini-boots with at least 6 different servers tending to each table instead of a single server providing all services. Servers were making single purpose trips rather than multi-tasking creating unnecessary noise and traffic. The dinners however were very good, and the primary server, was friendly and very competent.
Service was great, food quality was exceptional, and the ambiance was quaint yet cultural.
Fabulous food and service! Will definitely go back!!
Considering the price point - i was expecting more. Food is rather average. I have had way better at even a Cactus Club. I dine out at many high end restaurants in Vancouver at a somewhat similar pricepoint and have had way better depth and taste of the food. Each of the dishes I had there - I would make 10x better at home.
Awesome food. We go every year while visiting. The pasta is wonderful and top notch service. This is a gem in Penticton
Portions were quite generous, service was good. Food was really good, but definitely not amazing.
Just a dinner out with friends. The food was exceptional as was the service. We always visit La Villa Rosa every time we are in Penticton
We enjoyed wonderful food, every bite was scrumptious, great selection of Italian and continental cuisine. Served hot and fresh. Service was a little lacking at some points, they were busy. Overall, delicious and satisfying. Our table ordered a variety of their fare, pasta, veal, seafood - all prepared perfectly. Tyler is the best!
